Skip to comments.Madonna’s Superbowl Halftime Show: A Celebration of the Grand Priestess of the Music Industry

When I learned that Madonna aka the Grand Priestess of the music industry would be performing at the Superbowl halftime show, I thought: This should be interesting. And it was. While most were amazed by a woman in her fifties dancing around with LMFAO and others were annoyed at her lip-syncing, I was interested with something else: the flurry of symbolism flashed to billions of viewers worldwide. While most considered Madonnas performance as an entertaining interlude to the most important football game of the year, those blessed with symbol-literacy will probably agree with the following statement: Madonnas halftime show was a big celebration of the Illuminati industry and of its Grand Priestess, Madonna.
A week before the Superbowl, Madonna described on Anderson Cooper the spiritual importance she attributed to her halftime show:
The Superbowl is kind of like the Holy of Holies in America. Ill come at halfway of the church experience and Im gonna have to deliver a sermon. Itll have to be very impactful.

Wow, is she full of herself.
Creepy, very creepy paranoid delusions rant based on weird claims of knowledge of the “occult”, as if such were real and of importance.
FYI, your superstitions do not frighten me, service and professional organizations do not frighten me.
Madonna does not frighten me, but the author might if I thought more than a few people would take them seriously.
I saw a fifty year old broad constantly spreading her legs like a ho.
eh I don’t buy into this Illuminati stuff.
I think Madonna is quite deliberate in playing upon imagery taken from religion, history and legend. Her take on good and evil is to embrace the latter. So... she would embrace hell. May she rest in peace... world peace.
She, and her dance crew, looked ridiculous. Laughable really.
While the Illuminati CT might appeal to a lunatic fringe minority who oppose it, there are as least as many lunatic fringe within CT groups who support and are portions of the Illuminati. Go figure.
Didn’t watch her. Bleah.
A real statement on modern culture. Millions of people being entertained by an old skank.
My thoughts exactly.
I think she was copying Lady Gaa Gaa or is jealous of her or both.
(shrug) I was making a sandwich and snacking down in the kitchen.
Was the show any good?
Two of my all-time favorite movies had Madonna in them: ‘A League of Their Own’ and ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’. Plus, I enjoy a lot of her music. I’m not falling for the Joaquin Phoenix-style crazy talk.
Two of your ALL-TIME favorite movies had Madonna in them?
“Wow, is she full of herself.”
You’re right. My thoughts from the onset of the show. Particularly, you wanna-Madonna. The Madonna chanting. The images. It was all Madonna all the time. Self-promoting and didn’t enhance the Super Bowl.
Did I miss the super bowl again? Oh darn, maybe next year.
A pox on professional sports. It is just more boob bait for the Bubbas. There's more intellectual stimulation watching TruTV’s “World's Dumbest” or “Bait Car.”
I’d rather see a marching band than this commercialized, synthesized crap.
What is your take on the choir at the end?
From what I understand they were all taken from local church choirs (one of them a friend of mine).
I didnt bother watching. For several years the half time show has been too much flash and glitz. I use the time for a bathroom break, snack refills and beer run.
There are some things to marvel at here. One, she created herself from obscurity into a heck of a money maker. Two, she’s in great condition for a woman that age. But the whole show the group watching her at our home kept saying, “Here it comes. She’s really going to let it go now.” Ha! When it was over all I could think was, “Where’s the beef?”
